On many cars the headliner is a fabric sheet glued on to a backboard . So when the fabric droops it has become detached from the backboard, which is still in place.

Motor trimmers will spray an adhesive into the space between and carefully reattach the fabric. If your car is a vintage one you would be better to take it to a trimmer for a good job, but if just a hack car you can follow one of the guides like this

Why won't my 2001 VW beetle sunroof work?

Sounds like when they fixed the headliner they disconnected the power lead to the sunroof. Take it back to them and tell them to fix it; or go to a place that does sunroof repair and have them diagnose it; once you know what the cause is, you can go back to the upholstery shop and ask them if they will pay for the repair.

1986 nova headliner

Mine came down in 1998 due to foam deterioration and spray adhesive did not help. I had an upholstery shop redo it's been great after that. As long as the cardboard in the headliner is intact, it can be re-upholstered. Shoulder belts, dome light, sunvisors, rear view mirror have to be removed to take out headliner.
